EU and Germany: the champions of propaganda

 

Surely we all have already noticed by the media that these days again and again animal transporters are stopped by the police and depict dramatic scenes.

Last Friday, for example, the motorway police in the Nuremberg area (Germany) stopped an overheated animal transport with about 800 piglets. The officers had been alerted by a committed animal rights activist from the Nuremberg area.

He observed while driving on the A3 that many of the animals gasped and were in poor general condition.

Locally, the officials found that the temperature in the transporter was about 41 degrees Celsius. The outside temperature during the day was 38 degrees Celsius!

The networked animal rights activist observed and told us that the drinking system was only turned on, when the driver of the transporter was asked to do so. Already after a short time this was already empty. It did not really work.

“There’s a bit of criminal energy behind it” the police spokesman said. “At such temperatures, it’s like a death sentence.”

The truck was on its way from the Netherlands to Croatia – a distance of over 1000 kilometers.

Only in Austria a new stop was planned!!

Due to the prevailing high temperature and acute water shortage many of the animals were found in a very dehydrated state, at least two piglets were already dead.

After the animals were supplied with water and food in the premises of the slaughterhouse, the responsible VET doctor unfortunately released the truck and was allowed to resume its journey to Croatia.

Some of the piglets were previously found in such poor condition that they were killed on the spot.

My comment: (From the official information center for agriculture, Germany):

“Objective consideration of long-distance transport from Germany shows that German companies are complying with existing regulations.” (see above the case Nuremberg)

The protection of the animals is the focus of transport. After inspections in several EU Member States, the EU Commission emphasized that the additional transnational procedures for official animal welfare controls in Germany are excellent (see also above).

In this country, each long-distance transport in non-EU countries is monitored and checked by veterinary officials (as the vans wait for days at the Bulgarian-Turkish border crossing Kapıkule, at 40 degrees Celsius heat.)

We know very well that from the European ports European law is systematically broken, from here on every possibility of control ends.

In February 2017, two years ago, the public was shocked by the fall of a ship that sailed from a Croatian port to Alexandria in Egypt for six days. Three pregnant cows died already in the first four days. In the end, the number of dead animals increased to nine.

But according to EU law it is forbidden to transport pregnant animals!

In addition, the export of live slaughter and breeding animals is booming. Germany alone exported animals worth € 1.34 billion in 2017, almost eight percent more than in the previous year.

France, the Netherlands, Hungary and Germany are high on the list of EU suppliers. According to the Statistical Office of the EU, Turkey, Lebanon and Egypt are among the major importers.

One wonders, for how stupid keeps us the EU – Kommission and its business partners, the animal transport mafia!

My best regards to all, Venus
